Well, here we are 7 months later.
Feast or famine worked really well....until the holidays rolled around. And by holidays I mean from October until February.
Why so long?... October/Halloween.... November/Thanksgiving.....December/Christmas... January/New Years Day and Hubbys Birthday..... February/Valentines Day and My Birthday.
Five months of Celebrations.
Well, The weekend after my Birthday I stepped on the scale and it read 249.8.
Holy Crap. I had gained all the weight back that I had lost on the TA123 plan a few months before trying the Feast & Famine Plan. 35 lbs. I swore I would never get back over 250lbs again- and here I was on the brink again. And not far off from that it will fast go back to my heaveist 306 lbs.
I have one thing to say to that.
HELL TO DA NO.
Neither number is acceptable to me.
I was talking to two of my GFs who go to the gym. I'm giving serious thought to rejoining a gym. And as soon as the weather gets warmer I'm going to start walking home a few days a week. 1.8 miles one way. I wont walk IN- I hate getting all sweaty and stinky before even stepping foot into the office- but walking home will be better because I can walk in, drop the clothes and step straight into the shower.
I've also decided I'm taking up my teen hobby again. Hiking. But before I hike- I gotta walk... a LOT. You cant do 5 mile hikes if it takes everything you've got to walk a block and a half to buy your lunch. And my ultimate goal is to walk the Sandstone Trail from one end to the other. First in smaller bits- and my 5 year goal is to walk the entirety of it at a go. 134 miles. It will take me two weeks I reckon.
Anyway, I also reordered my booklet from the TA123 plan. I'm eating from memory of the bit's and pieces I remember from it for the past week... On Saturday it was Day 4 and I had lost 5.8 lbs. That's a good loss on the plan. You should be able to lost up to 10 lbs on the Boost- and I fully expect to lose that by Day 10. I'm weighing on Wednesday Mornings and Saturday Morning. I was weighing only on Saturdays, but I think if I weigh midway thru the week, if the numbers arent moving- or worse, going UP- I can adjust so each week I have a loss- even if it's a small loss. It's still a loss and the numbers are going in the right direction. as in DOWN.
So there you have it. I'm going to post every Wednesday and Saturday too- it may not be a long post- but it will give my results and thoughts for the day....or week.
I have faith that this time it will stick.
